Sportsbeat talks to Will Greenwood
NO Mako Vunipola, no problem – that’s the view of Rugby World Cup winner Will Greenwood who reckons the prop’s three-month injury layoff could be a blessing in disguise. The Saracens star will sit out his club’s Gallagher Premiership run-in with a hamstring issue, set to keep him on the sidelines for three months. Eddie Jones can rest easy as far as Greenwood is concerned, despite the fact Vunipola might miss all of England’s four World Cup warm-up matches over the summer.
Sam Underhill on hopes for RWC 2019
THOUGHTS of representing England in his first Rugby World Cup could not be further from Sam Underhill’s mind as he focuses on finishing the season with a bang for Bath Rugby. The 22-year-old flanker has been out of action for club and country since undergoing surgery after damaging his ankle ligaments during Bath’s victory over Leicester in December last year. Underhill’s injury resulted in him being side-lined for the entirety of the Six Nations as Tom Curry and Mark Wilson appeared to cement their place on the plane to Japan in his absence. But despite the openside flanker returning just in time to stake a claim for his inclusion in Eddie Jones’ World Cup squad, Underhill’s response to the England question is emphatic.

England's Anthony Watson talks to Sportsbeat
ANTHONY Watson admits he has learned a lot about himself as a person and a player after more than a year of injury torment as he prepares to make his competitive return. The 25-year-old Bath Rugby star last played for club or country in England’s 24-15 defeat to Ireland in the Six Nations last year during which he ruptured an Achilles tendon. And he was side-lined for longer than initially expected after re-tearing his Achilles tendon during pre-season, forcing him the miss the entirety of this year’s Championship campaign. But with Watson on the verge of returning to action for Bath, ahead of a season that concludes with a Rugby World Cup, he believes he is even stronger for his time away from the pitch.

Martin Johnson Land Rover Ambassador talks to Sportsbeat
MARTIN Johnson has rubbished concerns over a lack of leadership in the England side – despite their second-half collapse against Scotland. Leading 31-0 with just over half an hour on the clock, Eddie Jones’ side were forced to settle for a share of the spoils in the Six Nations curtain call after Scotland fought back to secure a draw. The result was the biggest comeback in international rugby history, with replacement fly-half George Ford further sparing England’s blushes with a last-gasp try to secure the draw. Much of the focus in the aftermath of the collapse centred on a perceived lack of leadership in the England camp, as skipper Owen Farrell was hauled off following a series of costly errors. But Johnson, who captained England to Rugby World Cup glory back in 2003, instead pinpointed poor game management as the main reason for the sharp turnaround in fortunes.
